Nursing

Nursing

You can expect the personal touch of family and neighbors. Many of our nurses have received special training to help manage chronic disease care, acute care and critical care. Their training and expertise underscore the importance of quality care that we strive to deliver for everyone that passes through our doors.

ELCH includes an Intensive Care and Coronary Unit to provide around the clock care for seriously ill patients.

Discharge Planning

Our staff uses best practices procedures and methods to ensure your hospitalization results in higher levels of patient satisfaction and fewer hospital readmissions. We are constantly striving to meet higher standards of care, and we measure our success based upon patient scores that are captured in surveys known as HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) and core measures.

Surgical Services

Our Surgery nurses are involved before, during and after inpatient and outpatient surgeries. The surgical nurses are specifically trained to provide patients with great care. They aid the doctors and anesthesiologists by informing them of vital signs and other pre-operative care information. During surgery, the nurse and the scrub technician assist the physician to provide you with the optimal surgical experience.

Intensive Care

The Intensive Care Unit includes specially trained registered nurses (RN) that are skilled at using lifesaving equipment to help improve the health of people that are critically ill. These RNs closely monitor the health of patients to ensure they receive proper care. Some of these nurses have been specifically trained in intensive cardiac care. ELCH offers these services as an extension of its inpatient program to meet the needs of our surrounding community.

Medical Surgery

These high performance nurses frequently monitor patients that no longer require the close care of the ICU. The Step Down Nurses are trained to respond to rapid changes in a patient’s vital signs. These providers may be RNs, LPNs and Patient Attendants.
